One of the many ways to have the best blog design, aside from putting pretty pictures and graphics, is through great use of typography.
Google Fonts is Google’s library of 1000+ licensed web fonts. This is Google’s way of making typography design accessible and open to be explored on the internet.
In fact, they are open-sourced and free to use. If you have a blog, you can freely and legally incorporate Google Fonts to your blog design ideas through their vast library of web fonts.
Google Fonts can be a resource for other uses than web fonts as well.
Fortunately, Google made their web fonts free for everyone to download, so you can also incorporate them into your graphic design like social media content, web banner ads, print ads, and many more to establish a consistent brand all throughout.
This makes it a great resource for businesses.
Google Fonts are perfect for those who don’t have their own fonts and want to explore what fonts work well for their brand.In this article, we’ll be giving you 7 Google Font combinations that will work well for your blog design.
